AC/DC Drummer Arrested for Breaching Bail Conditions

Troubled AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was at the centre of another police incident today in New Zealand when he was arrested for breaching his bail conditions.

Eye witnesses told the New Zealand Herald that Rudd had an altercation with a ‘huge man’ who is thought to be his former bodyguard. He was then said to have taken part in a car chase and “bloody dancing around and carrying on” in a street before being led away by police.

Bizarrely Rudd was not re-arrested, but appeared before Judge Paul Geoghegan at Tauranga District Court where the conditions of his bail were changed. He is now required to avoid consuming illegal drugs, after Crown solicitor Greg Hollister-Jones described the drummer’s behaviour as “erratic.”

Craig Tuck, the lawyer who dealt with the latest incident in place of Paul Mabey, said: “It was a meeting with somebody he wasn’t meant to associate with – it was a chance meeting and there was contact from that.”

AC/DC recently said they would tour next year regardless of Rudd’s status.
